Adelphic®, a Viant subscription-based self-service platform for cross-channel programmatic advertising, today announced new viewability, fraud prediction and bid optimization capabilities powered by the platform’s advanced machine learning functionality. The new platform enhancements showcase the company’s commitment to delivering industry-leading solutions that strengthen campaign efforts and build confidence in performance.

“We’ve focused on applying our machine learning capabilities to increase the scale of our advertisers’ available inventory, substantially lower their likelihood of bidding on fraudulent inventory and reliably predict the minimum cost to win an impression while still meeting their KPIs,” said Fabrizio Blanco, CTO at Viant. “We’re excited to offer these new features as programmatic traders can benefit immensely from machine learning. Our clients can now find confidence that their campaigns are running on vetted inventory and that fraudulent scenarios are the lowest they’ve ever been.”

Adephic’s viewability prediction solution uses machine learning to identify highly viewable inventory. This is achieved as bid requests are scored and if the request meets the specified score requirement, Adelphic approves the inventory to be bid on. From there, the company’s machine learning moves forward to identify how much to bid for an individual impression. Advertisers and marketers experience cost saving and enhanced ROI on their campaign efforts.

Due to growing industry demand and expectations, Adelphic upleveled the platform to provide users with a scalable approach when identifying and filling highly viewable inventory. Not only is viewable inventory available at scale, users have the ability to move forward with ad delivery all within the platform. With this in mind, users experienced a 4X increase in viewable inventory when compared to leading industry benchmarks — and two-thirds of Adelphic campaigns have opted-in for this feature.

The fraud prediction solution is implemented on a platform-wide basis, automatically eliminating inventory with a high probability of being fraudulent. Viant’s Adelphic is looking to set the standard when it comes to minimizing fraud and maximizing return. Similar to the company’s viewability approach, machine learning analyzes inventory and develops a fraud prediction score, and if the likelihood of fraud passes the threshold, the company eliminates that bid opportunity. To date, the new fraud prediction functionality saved users almost 10 percent of their campaign budgets.

Lastly, Adelphic’s bid optimization capabilities enable advertisers to identify how much to bid for a particular ad placement to secure an impression. By predicting the minimum price to win an impression, Adelphic increases the cost savings in bid efficiency for advertisers while ensuring they obtain the maximum value for their dollar while still hitting their performance goals.
